Tyson Fury has told Dereck Chisora that he is now homeless after the boxer declared he would bet his house on Whyte stopping him in their world title fight.
Chisora made the sensational claim during an interview on TalkSPORT during the week. But the top heavyweight has been left rueing his words after Fury thoroughly dominated Whyte on the way to knocking him out with an uppercut in the sixth round.
Fury and Chisora have been pals since their two bouts earlier in their careers. The world heavyweight champion has even previously said that he would be willing to make his last fight against Chisora, despite his recent losses, as an act of good faith.
But despite their friendship, Chisora backed Whyte to stop Fury this weekend. The heavyweight said: “This is the whole reason we love boxing. The guys you think are not going to win, they win and suddenly you hold your head, ‘What happened? They won?’
“Look at your faces in the studio! Tyson is my mate and I know he’s listening – Tyson, you’re going to get knocked out. That’s the only way he [Whyte] can win the fight.”
And Fury clapped back at his post-fight press conference, declaring Chisora to be homeless after his bet, which apparently fellow heavyweight Joseph Parker took him up on behind the scenes. However, he did kindly invite his old pal to move in with him after losing his house.

“Derek Chisora is homeless,” Fury proclaimed. “He lost his house to Joseph Parker. Never put your house on anything unless you’re sure and you can never be sure in the heavyweight division. He can come and live next to me in Morecambe.”
Fury has stated that he will be willing to take on exhibition bouts, such as a bizarre hybrid-rules bout with UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, but is retired from competitive boxing. He told BT Sport immediately after the fight: “I promised my lovely wife Paris of 14 years that after the Wilder 3 fight, that would be it.
“I meant it, we had a war, it was a great trilogy and I meant that. But I got offered to fight at Wembley at home and I believe I owed it to the fans, every person in the United Kingdom to come here and fight at Wembley. Now that it’s all done, I think this is it, this might be the final curtain for the Gypsy King. What a way to go out, a big thank you to the United Kingdom!”
